hey all... quick question I'm planning on installing a set of new white lights for my Kelisa. When I was surveying around, I found one which costs RM388 plus installation, called Phillips H4 white light. I've heard that all white lights aren't that clear compared to the normal halogen lights, and are even worse when its raining outside. The tauke of da shop said that this brand was different and was good and strong, basically just trying to sell his productlah really. My question to all is, is this brand of white light any good??? and if it is, is the price reasonable or am i getting ripped off here??? Or I should just abandon my plans in general and not give up practicality/efficiency over aesthetics... Thanks in advance for the info...

phillips crystal halogen bulb is one of the best in its class (means not HID, halogen but emit white light)... but still, u cant get anywhere near HID type... means ur visibility especially in rainy days will decrease... i'm now using normal halogen bulb with halogen spotlights, still cant see clearly in rain...

so the choice is up to u... white lights are cool but be reminded that ur visibility will be affected (u still can install spotlight to overcome the poor visibility)... if its out of ur budget, go back for OEM bulbs... they are as good too...
got money only change HID lo...

get a spotlight for your car..that will solve the efficiency in raining conditions..

when raining..just switch on the yellow halogen spotlight..but if you only have the white bulb..damn scary man..if raining..less visibility....

p/s : im using michiba 50%+ bulb only..not HID or taiko2 brand..so maybe differ from the philips bulb...maybe the philips is better in raining conditions..
